Hand crafted Chalk Board Bottle Lamps make a wonderful and unique gift for every day and any occasion.
If you’re a serious bottle lamp maker, you probably collect recycled bottles from area restaurants, bars and friends. You might ask what to do with all of the nondescript bottles that have worn or torn labels.
How about turning them into lighted bottles that can be used for signage just about anywhere?
This is a very easy DIY bottle craft project that doesn’t cost you a lot of money.
Step 1: Thoroughly clean the empty bottles and carefully remove all the labels on the front and back of the bottle. Soak the bottle in hot, soapy water and use a plastic scraper to easily remove any stuck on label glue and other gunk.
Step 2: Tape the neck and base of the bottle using painters or masking tape. This will give you a nice, large writing area and will allow the lights to show through the top and bottom of the bottle.
Step 3: Purchase a can of Chalk Board paint, we find the black Rust-Oleum Chalk Board spray paint works very well.
Step 4: Spray the first coat very lightly and allow it to dry completely. Only spray in a well ventilated area, stand back about 8 inches from the bottle and be careful of runs!
Step 5: Add a second and third light coat of Chalk Board paint until the area is adequately and uniformly covered. This will give you a smooth writing surface that can be wiped and re-written again and again.
Step 6: Fill the recycled bottles with high efficiency, cool to the touch LED light strings and you will save on electricity and never have to worry about fire hazards.
Step 7: Use your imagination to decorate the outside of your Chalk Board Bottle Lamp or simply attach a piece of chalk with a length of string to the neck of the bottle.
